LUSH IS COMING TO PUERTO RICO. Yes, all in caps because that is how big my excitement is. Coming to the Mall of San Juan, our newest high-end mall that is set to open in March 2015, Lush has finally arrived to make our skincare problems go away. I have been a Lush fan ever since I first moved to Florida in 2009 and have visited their stores in the USA, Canada and in Lush’s motherland, England. Yes, Lush comes to us directly from Poole, England and not only makes its products using fresh and natural ingredients, but also helps and supports diverse charities along the way. I am super excited to share with all of you, my top favorite products and I can’t wait to stock up on them as soon as the store opens. Not only is Lush famous for their amazing products, but also their customer service is consistently one of the best out there and that is truly something I am looking forward to experiencing here in Puerto Rico. Lush, Welcome to Puerto Rico and thank you for bringing me a piece of England as I miss it terribly. FINALLY!!
The Sacred Truth: This is my favorite fresh face mask. It contains fresh papaya that brightens your skin and feels amazing when applied fresh out of the fridge. The fresh face masks must be kept in the refrigerator and this is perfect for our hot climate. Nothing beats having a cool mask on your skin on a hot night. I heard it was discontinued because of reformulation so I am hoping to have my hands on another tub very soon! I must find a new favorite fresh face mask in the meantime!
Herbalism: This was the first product I ever tried from Lush and it was an eye opener in terms of how well my skin adapted to this cleanser. As you can tell, I am all for brightening products and this one achieves that. It is gentle on the skin but powerful enough to leave everything clean. My skin loved this product, and so did I.
Dream Cream Hand and Body Lotion: When I lived in England, I spent close to 9 months without tanning, ( for an island girl like myself that is LONG!). I went on a trip to Thailand where I spent ALL of my time getting as much sun as humanly possible and upon returning my body was super dry and peeling. Lush’s Dream Cream was the only moisturiser that actually worked and it calmed my skin. I highly recommend this for dry skin types.
Buffy: This body butter/exfoliator was also one of my first Lush purchases ever and I have loved it since Day 1! It is incredibly moisturising when used in the shower and provides gentle exfoliation and afterwards you do not need worry about moisturising!
I love Juicy: This is my favorite clarifying shampoo. Whenever I feel that my hair needs to get rid of product build up or simply when I want it to look and feel really clean I reach for this shampoo! This will probably be the first product I purchase again at the new store as I have not found a clarifying shampoo like this one.
Rub Rub Rub: This body exfoliator will leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed. Its sea salt components acts as an astringent as well, although it is not recommended for facial use. Use it once or twice a week and your skin will thank you.
Turkish Delight: This AMAZING shower “smoothie” will leave you smelling of roses the entire day! Its creamy consistency makes it easy to apply in the shower and hydrated afterwards. THIS IS MY FAVORITE LUSH ITEM EVER! AND EVER! AND FOREVER. I am obsessed with the smell and I hope that Lush brings out a cream with this scent because it will be the best thing ever.
